Rob,
Success I’ve just ran the script on a fresh install of Raspbian Buster and it’s all working fine, all cameras, mounts, focuses, filter wheels are there & no crashing on starting Ekos.

Well done, many thanks

Alan

Rob,
Same here.
Re-ran the script and all the cameras display in the drop down menu and can be selected, but trying to start Ekos results in a crash and Indiserver is left still running in the background. Restarting KStars allows you to set up Ekos again, but when trying to start Ekos there is a warning about Indiserver running and it asks if you wish to close, as soon as you try to close the Indiserver it crashes KStars again.

Rob,
I've just looked in the indi-build / 3rdparty-drivers and there's no manifest.txt screen dump attached

Rob,
The build seemed to go OK it didn't hang or crash in any way it appeared to run just like the previous successful setups I've done from the earlier versions of the script, I have also tried running the script on the light version of Raspbian Buster with the same result.

I have also re run on a Pi 4 one of the previous scripts from a backup I have and it has installed fine, all the cameras are fully installed

Rob,
Many Thanks for the reply I've just tried ls /usr/bin/indi* all the drivers for the Mounts, Focusers, Filter Wheels and auxiliaries show up there, but there are no Camera drivers visible.

ls /usr/share/indi there is only following xml files showing, drivers.xml indi_tcfs_sk.xml

Rob,
I've just tried to use the latest AstroPI3 Raspbian Buster script on a Raspberry Pi 4 and it all runs through fine, but there are no third party cameras showing in the drop down menu for either the main ccd or guide ccd in the Ekos Profile Editor, also the cameras are also missing from PHD2 drop down menus. I have an older version of the script and it is working fine.
The generic & simulator cameras are present & are able to be selected, the driver files for the third party cameras appear in the folder /home/pi/AstroRoot/indi-3rdparty .
The focusers, mounts & filter wheels are all present in their respective drop down menus, I've tried a few times with different SD cards SanDisk Extreme 32 GB and using both Etcher and Win32 Disk Imager, same result every time.

Regards Alan

Tonight's Testing,
I've stretched 3 images all from the Atik 428EX in PixInsight using the STF function to the same level.
From the left first image is a 2 second Dark captured using Windows and Artemis, no line visible. (Note the camera image is inverted when compared to the Ekos captures)
The second image is a 2 second Dark captured on a raspberry pi 4 Raspbian Buster using Ekos and shows a line.
The third image is a 600 second Sub captured on a raspberry pi 4 Raspbian Buster using Ekos and again no line visible

Regards

Alan

Wouter,
I’ll run off a few darks later today and give your suggestions a try to see what results I get

Using the Atik 428 EX last night I’ve noticed that the horizontal lines disappeared when the camera is cooled to -10C and the Subs are 600 seconds, but as soon as you warm it up and take shorter Subs they return. I’ve tried with the camera connected directly to the raspberry pi 4 and connected on it’s own with no other equipment connected and still the same result.

Alan
